SAL showcases her powerful vocal ability in new single "Red Wine"
Updated: Mar 9
SAL has developed a sound that appeals to a global audience. Originally hailing from County Cork, she spent years collaborating and engaging within the local music scene, immersing herself in different types of music that would go on to forge her distinctive sound. Her songwriting ability is infamous, and something that she's very proud of. Speaking about this, she says: ”I love being colourfully descriptive about the simple things that we regularly experience, and highlighting aspects of life that are not so simple at all."
SAL is all set to make 2023 her year with her glistening new single "Red Wine." The single mixes vintage and contemporary together, creating a warm and unique offering. Guitars ebb and flow between each other to create a pool of swirling melodies. On top, her vocals are softly-penned but create an instant impact. Accompanying is an equally stunning video.
Speaking about the single, SAL says: “I wrote 'Red Wine' in the depths of winter by candlelight. It's a song about struggling to let go and facing a painful truth. A longing to hold on to how things used to be and knowing that the weight of love you have for someone might always feel like an indulgence but it's all that you know. The song fell out of me effortlessly, it almost felt like the song was waiting for me to write it.
I recorded 'Red Wine' with a recording collective here in Cork, Ireland called Catalyst. I have never felt more at ease and comfortable in a recording setting. The song just fell into place without much discussion between the musicians, producer or myself about what was needed. It was all extremely intuitive, gentle and fell into place so beautifully. The trumpet and piano were tracked after the live recording. These embellishments added so much more sadness and vulnerability to the song, which complimented the lyric in the most perfect way.”
With fantastic, heartwarming music and a loyal fanbase, this year is going to be the one for SAL.
